Welcome to Miles To Go Drug Prevention Education Lecture Series
Miles To Go began 20 years ago as a lecture series for parents, teachers, and students primarily
in private schools in California. Our popularity grew rapidly with an exclusive clientele of schools,
and we continue to expand our reach as we offer new programs and opportunities. Each
presentation leaves old style lecturing behind and tells a story using science, humor and a multi-
sensory approach to teaching.
In our first year, Miles To Go started publishing the Drug Fact Update, which became a popular
teaching tool for instructors in the classroom. Although the technology has changed, we continue
to send information to teachers, students and parents as we pursue our primary goal: simplify a
complex subject. What began as a mailed quarterly newsletter is now delivered daily via Twitter.
These Drug Fact Update “Tweets” are then condensed into free periodic email newsletters for
parents and teachers which serve to inform and inspire conversations about drug issues. We
also produce periodic blogs, which are commentaries on current drug topics we think are
important. All of these Drug Fact Updates are then turned into podcasts available on Podbean,
iTunes, and audio buttons throughout our website. Each year, we turn several of these featured
stories into special projects for teachers called News for Your Classroom.
As we enter our 20th year, we are very proud of our books: Not All Kids Do Drugs,
The Mother’s Checklist of Drug Prevention, and Where's The Party?, Not All Kids Do Drugs for
Teens. Our newest book is for students and their parents as they head off to their first year of
college. Don't Drink The Punch: How to Avoid Passing Out, Blacking Out or Failing Out in Your
First Year of College is due in the spring 2016.
This series of handbooks were created to be short, accessible reads for parents and teachers.
Each book is based on a parent lecture of the same name. See our Publications Page for details
and ordering. Contact us at Milestogofirstname.lastname@example.org for bookings.
